Social media users react to Dayo Amusa's post

lux_lush_k said:

"I agree with her… cyber bullying is as detrimental as physical attack. It destabilizes you emotionally…. You come online and permit yourself to say some horrendous things simply because that person opposes your opinion. It’s easy to point an accusing finger and label others as thugs… online bullies are even bigger emotional thugs."

"She’s right. Two wrongs do not make a right."
